Madison East students create ‘the most historic yearbook’

Scott Girard:

The theme for the Madison East High School yearbook seemed clever when it was decided in the fall: “Looking Ahead with 2020 Vision.”

It “ended up being a bit ironic,” East junior Ruby Marine said, given how unexpected the last three months of the school year have been.

Ruby is part of the class that is continuing to put together the school’s yearbook, the annual documentation of the year’s events.

Traditionally, sports teams, dances and a tribute to the graduating seniors fills pages that get covered with signatures from others at the school shortly after it’s distributed. This year, documenting the unusual end to the year amid the COVID-19 pandemic has taken precedence.
